Frequently Asked Questions About Embossing
Embossing is a beautiful technique used in card decorating and scrapbooking. Embossing means to adorn or decorate with a raised design, which works especially well on paper in conjunction with rubber stamps. Tools used in embossing may range from paper cutters and die cutting machines to dual head embossing tools and templates. You can easily purchase embossing kits in the craft store, which include flocking powder, patterns and ink. Check out these frequently asked questions about embossing:

Which powders are best for my purposes?
Different types of embossing powders are best for different uses. Use detail embossing powder for stamped images that have many fine lines. Use opaque powder for bolder stamp images across a wider area. And use tinsel or glitter powder when you want to add a touch of brilliance to your image.

How do I emboss with stencils?
You need to work quickly when embossing paste on brass stencils. Why? The paste dries in about 20 minutes, so avoid drying into the fine bridgework by moving along fairly quickly. Also, you should work on a flat surface to ensure a smooth image; otherwise, the paste will smudge if the stencils are bent.

Where can I purchase embossing supplies?
You can purchase embossing tools and supplies at any craft store or online retailer. Buy in bulk from wholesalers, or get what you need from a home stamping party. Party consultants can advise guests on not only the best embossing tools but also how to use them correctly. If you’re a hostess, you can earn free products, too.

Embossing crafts is a skill learned through practice. Teachers skilled in arts and crafts, and rubber stamping in particular, may offer lessons on perfecting this skill. These teachers should be experienced in how to properly emboss and engrave all sorts of materials, from metal to paper.

They can teach how to use cutters, dies, templates, foil, and stencils to create dry embossing and other techniques. This is a fun technique to use in scrapbooking; all you need is a picture, some rubber stamps, ink, and a variety of embossing tools. Craft stores are another component of your embossing endeavor, as are print shops that offer laser engraving machines.

Craft stores have aisles of tools designed to help you create memories through scrapbooking and card making. Product lines may include dual head embossing tools, boards, ink, powder, and kits. Sales associates can guide customers to where they need to go, in terms of sale items and popular items like the latest patterns.

Tools to emboss or engrave are also available online. Such online providers may offer regular sales, clearance blow-outs, seasonal discounts, and bulk discounts, in the case of wholesalers. Websites can be categorized by theme, price, brand, and popular items.

Virtual assistance may be available, as well as phone support. Many embossing tools providers sell other general crafts and supplies as well, from scrapbook paper to ink. Some companies don’t just sell embossing tools; they may offer in-home parties led by consultants. Such consultants are skilled not just in embossing, but also in stamping and die cutting as well. They can guide their guests on how to achieve these techniques, and then guests have an opportunity to buy.
